Much has been ported, mostly from LitMUSE. That seemed to be the most logical place to begin. I have a year left with the domain, but I decided not to renew it again. I added a student guide menu that will appear on all pages germane to student success. I also have been tweaking my course polices, creating pages and template snippets that can appear on syllabi. my syllabus for World Lit is pretty much complete, other than requirements. I think I'm going back to a simple point system for grades, and I will use Gradekeeper[1] to record them. D2L is just terrible; I can finally say that after about two years of using it. I have always maintained that no one should be forced to use crappy software.

I've been working mainly on Project Mailer, so I have not done much here. That will have to change as the spring semester approaches. I made some main pages, like one for my teaching and one for my writing.

I found a skin that I kind of like. I've been tweaking the install of WikiMedia, and I continue to import content. I'm just trying to do it logically using navbars and categories. I love MediaWiki's flexibility.

Installed the WikiMedia software and began porting content from LitMUSE and other areas. Since I've been doing so much editing on Wikipedia, WikiMedia seemed like a good choice for consolidating my web sites. Everyone knows how to use Wikipedia, right? This will be a natural extension of the wiki. I figure I'll use this page for site updates.

Notes

  1. It's a bit austere, but it does what I want it to do. See Gradekeeper.
